I have worked with Adrienne in the F&A environment for over 10 years, both as the primary consultant on an engagement, and also as the person in the background who supported my primary consultant during other engagements. Adrienne is a wealth of knowledge regarding all issues dealing with Facilities and Administrative costs and proposals; effort reporting; service centers; and other costing issues in the grants/research arena.
Jerry and Mary Beth teamed with us, helping us to update our subrecipient monitoring plan. They helped us simplify our processes while also ensuring we were in compliance with new requirements. I very much appreciated their collaborative and flexible approach. They were able to quickly engage and give us a product that helped our institution and also reduced administrative burden.
Adrienne is indeed a natural communicator who builds positive relationship with others and tactfully diffuse heated situations by initiating administrate solutions to challenging/difficulty ideas or uncertainty. Her communicational skill and problem-solving ability inspire teamwork and trust.
